MentorPrize recruits mentors for select organizations in the Greater Washington, DC region that serve a broad range of constituencies -- from at-risk youth to immigrants struggling to gain a foothold in the job market. MentorPrize does this at no cost to the mentors or the organizations it serves because it believes that mentoring helps communities flourish.
This non-profit group, which launched in 2015, recognizes that finding a mentoring opportunity can be daunting given the dizzying array of area programs. MentorPrize took the time to assess dozens of these programs and partnered with those that show a demonstrated record of stability and a commitment to best mentoring practices. After doing extensive research, MentorPrize is now well-positioned to match potential mentors with programs that suit their interests, time constraints and preferred locations.
Taking part in quality mentoring relationships provides benefits that extend beyond the mentee. Research confirms that the rewards are many for mentors and the businesses that encourage this type of volunteerism. Mentoring can improve a mentor’s morale, productivity, communication skills, and overall emotional well-being. One Deloitte Volunteer Impact Survey found that the all-important millennial generation is especially attracted to companies that make it easy for their employees to volunteer. Another concluded that millennials who frequently participate in workplace volunteer activities are almost twice as likely to be satisfied with their career progression than those who do not.
